    It's generally safe, but the amount of care required (like paying for registered / certified mail) would be at your discretion & how much the ticket it worth.  Just make sure you signed the ticket & fill out any necessary paperwork your state's lottery commission requires.

    Please be aware that any major winnings (like a ticket worth a million dollars OR a multi-state lottery jackpot winner) will likely need to you to arrange an appointment with the lottery commission (typically at their HQ) to claim your winnings.

    In Rhode Island, due to the Covid 19, it is the only way to cash in taxable tickets
